Top Ten Words to Describe the United States

America is an excellent country, or a horrible country, depends on how you look at it. We are one of the top economies in the world, but we don't have free health care yet. We may have invented many things such as cars, but we're also one of the most obese countries in the world.

The Top Ten

1 Revolutionary

Who was the first country to break away and completely break down other nations and their political beliefs and use a mixture of those as the backbone of our nation so it could thrive and succeed and prove our enemies that we could make it from nothing? The United States of America did.

Honestly we have been through so much yet we still stand tall, and with Trump as president we need to be united as one revolutionary country, now is no the time to play the he said she said game. Now in the time to be Americans!

What? What country invented both apple and windows, which are the best electronics companies IN THE WORLD? ? !

Good word

2 Idiots

From my many visits to the States, I've learned that the stereotypical American idiots are far outnumbered by welcoming, kind people. - PetSounds

The people that I met on my last visit to California were actually very polite, and did a lot to make my family welcome there. There are some parts of Britain which don't have this virtue. And forgive my smugness, but a few of them openly said they loved the accent! - PositronWildhawk

Just because you'll find an idiot in America doesn't mean we're all idiots! The idiots stand out and choose to look like that even after realizing how ignorant they look! So before people stereotype and say America is dumb, let's think that there are also smart people in America (which actually make up the majority in America because of our schooling) and there are idiots in other countries as well.

Amazing 10/10

4 Large

But Russia is still bigger... - Turkeyasylum

... As well as Canada. This word describes a lot of Americans, as well. - PetSounds

Yeah, the people are large...

Wait, you meant the size of the country itself!?


5 Obesity

A third isn't THAT much.

Okay we're fat, I accept it. - keycha1n

Almost all the kids in the schools I have been at are at now are not fat or obese most of them are a normal size or underweight, barely any if any people even try to be skinny and they still eat their full share of food.

I have never met an obese person in America. If people are saying 1/3 is obese, than how come I don't see them? Like anywhere.

Watch your profanity

6 Charitable

Tragic earthquake in Nepal YESTERDAY.
India will have its teams there first, they are by far the closest, US has more sophisticated rescue equipment, already on the way, and already leading financial aid effort.
Before that, pick your disaster, Philippine Hurricane, Indonesian Tsunami, US gave much more time, effort, personnel, equipment, and money than whatever pathetic hellhole you live in.

Americans give more to charity than any other country.

America gives so much to other nations for example, Africa and even though they can't really pay us back or trade with them we continue to give because as Americans we have the opppurtuntity to give and keep giving.

Tell me, when was the last time the U.S. Helped another nation. Even if you could, other countries already did that as well, so if anything, THEY should also receive some regonition.

7 Convenient
8 Misunderstood
9 Obama

Obama is great; yet, people seem to lack political enlightenment because how can Obama pass any law if it can't get to his desk?! Unlike the progressive America, our political parties in the House and Senate go head in head with each other, forgetting that COMPROMISE is key to success. However, everyone now seems to seek their own interest in America, even America itself. (I'll blame your government teachers and the media bias which induces ignorance)

God keep him and kill trump

Obama: the person Americans blame everything on - kaitlynrad11

He is trash

10 Democracy

Famous quote from America's staunch ally Churchill: "Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others."

You can propose a bill anytime you want to. You can vote on your representative and senators, and you can vote for the president. So everyone who passes the actual bill should be someone you're okay with. At least the greater of two evils. Why do you need to see the bills? You have representation. We barely pass any regardless, and that's because we can no longer agree on anything. - keycha1n

Actually, the United States system of government is a republic; some similar ideas but not a true democracy. - Billyv

Haha you just got proven wring by a seventh grader, ME

12 Imperfect

No one is perfect.. especially us in America, we do many things wrong. But, guess what? Everyone makes mistakes. - CloudofMercury

No country is perfect but america is a really great place nonetheless.

There's no doubt we're not perfect. Every country has their flaws, even America. - Turkeyasylum

It's part of human nature, even Americans have their limits

13 Unhealthy

This is a lie, not everyone is unhealthy in America.

Some people eat healthy foods.

This is especially true for our lack of free healthcare.

Same. your like my best friend lisneyyy!

14 Diverse

You are Trolling up and down this poll, spewing hatred without a single specific, which could easily be refuted. Surprised the OP allows it.

America may call themselves a "melting pot" all they want, though the fact is that other countries are equally as diverse, if not more. Hell, other countries actually embrace and welcome it; their melting pot actually melts. This is obviously totally unlike those racist Americans.

Um Hello? Our country was made by different groups of people coming together and your saying we aren't diverse? Do you know what the word diverse means? - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

17 Freedom

This one makes me laugh... we aren't as free as people say.. the government watches us, yes. Damn, I mean Obama isn't doing anything helpful, he's making everything worse... (sorry for the language.. :) ) - CloudofMercury

Do you have any idea how painful and sad we had to fought for our freedom for centuries. Freedom isn't easy to earn but we don't give up.

Great word to describe America!

I’m really sad when I see people talk America as “obese”, “celebrities”, “popularity”, and all that stuff.That’s not America.America is meant to be the The Land Of The Free.America earned there freedom, do you realize that we are one of the few countries in the world that have never been overpowered by military leaders? Have any of you read American history? How hard it was to fight for freedom? We take it for granted.So many other countries are suffering, yet we’re not grateful if we don’t have a phone or we’re not slim or popular.Freedom makes America, America.The U.S.A.We have the choice of our leaders, whether we like the leader or not.Freedom is beautiful, and we have it.Our American ancestors fought for it.Freedom is my word for the U.S.A.

18 Successful

I think America is highly successful. To build ourselfs up from nothing through hardships and become a strong, fairly wealthy, country that can provide for and protect its people.

19 Violent

Not true. We just imprison more people than other countries because it's BIG BUSINESS! Any idiot knows that America is ALL ABOUT THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR!

Funny that the OP, TA won't print the inconvenient truth that this is false.

Lol not all of us

Violence is always the answer
